Princess Diana, One Day One Dress: 17th September 1980, Pimlico Kindergarten, London

Lady Diana Spencer as the world first saw her.“Has Charles found his future bride?” wrote Daily Mail diarist Nigel Dempster. The kindergarten assistant, photographed with her charges the following day on 17th September 1980 at work in the Young England kindergarten in Pimlico, made her first fashion blunder, with the see-through Laura Ashley skirt that allowed photographers to show her legs. She also wore a V-necked Benetton slipover. She chose sweet-pea colours, peep-toe shoes and a pattern of hearts.
